So UFC 141's main event hung in the balance, after all.

Frank Mir was on deck in the event that the Nevada State Athletic Commission declined to license Alistair Overeem to fight Brock Lesnar, UFC president Dana White today told MMAjunkie.com.

"I promise I didn't lie in Toronto about Alistair," White said. "I really had no idea."

I'm glad Overeem cleared....this is a huge heavy weight match up....a fight people have been waiting to see.
